Graphic Storytelling is a four year bachelor programme in which students learn how to create visual stories and universes at a professional level.
The first two years of the programme are dedicated to mastering the art and craft of creating comics, from writing and design to inking and lettering. The third year explores related fields in which the skill set of a comics creator can be put to use - animation, film, games, communication - and the fourth is comprised of an internship and a thesis project.
Graphic Storytelling is taught at The Animation Workshop/VIA UC in Viborg, Denmark by guest teachers, all of whom are professionals from the industry. Examples of previous teachers: Ed Piskor ("Hip Hop Family Tree"), Madeline Rupert (“Sakana”), Jason Lutes (“Berlin”) Ghostshrimp ("Adventure Time"), and Matt Bors (The Nib).
